Lucky Thrift Shop Buy

I'm double posting today, see below. On the way to visiting Mom today I made a quick visit to one of the thrift stores I go to once in awhile. Most times I come out empty handed, but once in a while I'll find some vintage treasure, like today! I found a really sweet vintage chenille bedspread! I just washed it and I'm going to try to get it listed soon on Ebay.

Very pretty isn't it?
And talk about washing...well, I did some of that this morning and Murphy's Law prevailed! If you are going to have a kleenex tissue mixed in with your wash, which is bad enough, it will most certainly be in the load of dark stuff...........Jeans, black socks, black golf shirt, ugh!!! I was sure I checked every single pocket for tissues but I obviously missed one somewhere. Shake, shake, shake,...pick, pick, pick....The dryer got rid of most of it thank goodness!

After chuckling at your Kleenex'd laundry, I thought that in almost 40 years of married life, I don't think I've ever had a Kleenex in a light load....how about you?
